Added to the lineup of our famous “Wall of Shoes” – new in stock, Men’s Stacy Adams Madison Cap Toe Shoes in Brown and Black, Sizes 6-13

Good news for those of the Film and Television Wardrobe Department persuasion! The Ian Drummond Collection has recently added a huge selection of Stacy Adams cap-toe shoes for men in sizes 6-13, and in good assortments of browns and black to our rental stock. These shoes work for period looks from the 30s through to the present, and the quality is great. Clean and Classic and ready to rent!

The Ottawa Vintage Clothing Show

No sooner have we unpacked from the CAFTCAD Movie Wardrobe Sale, and it’s time to get ready for the Ottawa Vintage Clothing Show – and it does what it says on the tin. It’s One Amazing Day!

Sign up for an email reminder and discount admission here.

You can look forward to our bringing a considered collection of what we do well: ladylike designer clothing (Valentino, Sonia Rykiel and Louis Féraud are pictured above) along with cocktail hats, party dresses, quality handbags and at least one rack of handsome clothing for gentlemen and those who keep it dapper.

Do let us know if there’s anything you’re hoping for Ian to import from Toronto, via Facebook or Email.

We don’t often rent “historical” costume – as evidenced that the newspapers that stuffed these shoes were dated 2005. Pieces that work for such periods do come in from time to time though, and we are happy to sell them off reasonably if we have them. Today a rack of sad knit shawls, rough woolens and broken-down shirts in weaves that mimic hopsacks and homespuns are going out the door – along with a basket of miserable-looking shoes. Poor barely-fashionable folks of the 1700s — it must have been rough.

Thinking Cozy Thoughts…

We’ve noticed during these past few Autumn-like days (fine, weeks) that our Etsy shop Ian Drummond Stash has had increasing traffic from those who participate in indoor winter sports. But, you know, our kind of sports: sewing, dressmaking, quilting and crafting.

Today we were eyeing  the towering racks stocking our laces, bibs and bobs and bits and pieces that are due to hit the shop this winter from one massive collection we absorbed, and we sighed. They look like snowfakes, and we’re not ready.

We realized that the best way to extend the feel of summer is to look at cheery cottons and flowered prints, and novelty prints evoking the Casbah. So this week we’ll behave, complete our film work like good studio employees, and treat ourselves to getting these vintage fabrics and materials listed.

And while the weather may be chilly, our hearts are warmed by this enlightening post by the Kindness Blog: Flower Sack Dresses from the Flour Mills.  We have a good stock of such fabric in the Stash shop, and it’s always a little thrill when some flour/feed sack prints turn up in the period clothing for our movie wardrobe rental stock.

Parures and Demi-Parures for Our Rental Collection

Ian had the great fortune (and we’ll say it ourselves – good eye) this past weekend at the Toronto Vintage Clothing Show to acquire more than a few gorgeous sets of costume jewellery that are now fantastic additions to our movie and television wardrobe rental collection. Dropping names such as Hattie Carnegie, Hobé, Trifari and DeMario is hard to resist, even if the signatures themselves can’t be seen on screen. Parures and demi-parures are one of the best ways to complete a “look” – and we’re always on the lookout for more. Ian Drummond Collection Toronto Vintage Clothing Show Sterling Peace Pin

Kid Stuff

We also have a wide assortment of children’s items in the collection.  And this has to be the sweetest and most glorious 1970s child’s polyester tee shirt that we ever did see.
